Matmen’s 11: Knights Bring One More

Oakleaf puts us nearly a quarter of the way through in terms of schedules in hand for the Northeast site (to be fair, the Knights did try to send this a couple of weeks back, but because we operate on a shoestring budget that gets shoestringier by the day around here, I didn’t have the application to be able to open it).

That being said, Oakleaf has several new dates to go along with their returning events on the calendar. December starts off with a pair of returns to Bishop Snyder, for North Florida Duals on Week 1 and Westside Kiwanis Week 2. The Clay County Knights also return to the Flagler Rotary to close out January and to the Clay Rotary to start the February tournament stretch run.

New events for Oakleaf include the Ridgeview Rumble on the weekend of Week 3, and the Knights will be part of the strongly-upgraded Battle of the Border event at Yulee to open 2017. They’ll also join the Flagler Duals on the second weekend of January, and go to Camden County’s “call out” event on the third weekend.

Singular duals include a Knight vs. Knight matchup at home with Creekside on January 11, senior night on January 19 against Orange Park, and away duals at Middleburg on February 1 and Buchholz on February 8.

So who will put us at 25%? Will YOUR school be the next “one more?”

So These Happened…(1A)

In case you missed it…we previewed the whole state. All classes. All districts. The stars. The kids to watch. The kids who are up-and-coming. (Almost) all of them. Hopefully we didn’t miss too many of the kids who were hurt (or didn’t compete) in the post-season.

We Have 10: Broncos Enter The List

We’re at double digits. Not sure when we had 10 last year, or two years, but I’m happy to have 10 with nearly two full weeks before September. Middleburg is our 10th schedule in hand.

The Broncos are returning to Bishop Snyder for both the first two weekends, North Florida Duals and Westside Kiwanis, and will be at Ridgeview for the Panthers’ two-day Rumble event. In January, Middleburg will be in Yulee’s Battle on the Border the first weekend, in St. Cloud on the second week (they are calling it the Bulldog Brawl, while another schedule I have has called it the Troy Smith Duals, since the Gateway assistant moved over to St. Cloud). The Broncos will be in Palm Coast twice, at Matanzas for the St Johns River Conference meet, at Flagler Palm Coast for its Rotary meet to close out January and will be at Green Cove Springs for Clay’s Rotary tournament.

As far as individual duals are concerned, Middleburg will host Ed White on December 14, travel to Ridgeview on January 25, host Oakleaf for the Bronco Senior Night on February 1 and wrap up the regular season on the road at Creekside on February 8.

So that’s 10. Who’s going to be 11?
